by his opposition to george w. bush and the iraq war. that was his key platform and since then, for years, now he's in his sixth year of office, he is blamed bush again and again and again for the problems that he inherited. the fact of the matter is the fact of the matter is barack obama in my view and in the view of the clintons has caused many of his own problems. we see now the middle east going up in flames. hillary clinton urged barack obama to get involved in syria early in that war, not with ground troops but with the support of the opposition to the assad regime. and if obama had listened to hillary i think we would not be seen the spread of radical islam through serious into iraq like we are seeing today. then there was of course the reset with russia in which the obama administration tried to make a good relations with vladimir putin. we have seen how that has worked out so again and again it's blaming the past is no excuse for not functioning well in the present and i think that the clintons feel very strongly that as bill clinton once put it and i use this as the title of my

the president of iraq are sufficient? >> have our actions been sufficient? no. our actions in our dealings with the government in iraq have not been sufficient, and it was very necessary in the past for the united states to lean very heavily on the government, especially on maliki. if you were to point to one thing that has unraveled our ability of iraq as a cohesive it is theesist isis, decisions made by mr. maliki. awesomeously, he is so -- he has so ostracized the sunni and kurdish community, but on top of that his decision to go to the military -- he just put his son -- for those of you who saw that -- his son is now in charge of the military in iraq. he has gone to the officer corps and removed a competent officers and instead put in his friend. any of those friends have no takes brains whatsoever. the troops have no confidence in the officer corps as a consequence of the decision to sack the senior officers. you have an individual here who go, andp down, who must you saw health the stony -- al -sistani, you saw the shia religious leader explained the necessity of an to stepping down,

years of war in iraq and afghanistan, there is some war weariness in the united states. we should remember that we still have soldiers fighting in afghanistan. but i don't think it's going to affect what's going on in israel in any way. israel has historically never asked american soldiers to fight its wars, so they're not asking for american boots on the ground in any way. congress historically has been very pro israel and last week passed the house of representatives by a voice vote, resolution strongly supporting israel. i don't see that any nonintervention that may or may not be within the american political scene right now affecting what's happening in israel. >> president obama says that he's willing to negotiate a cease fire between the two sides and also, all 15 members of the u.n. city council today responding to this crisis for the first time calling for a cease fire as well. we had ambassador talking to eric shaun earlier saying, in effect, israel won't stop until hamas is anilated. do you have any idea or speculation how or when this current conflict ends? >> i have no

watch reported the alleged executions on friday. citing testimonies of local residents across iraq. the group says government forces have killed at least 255 sunni prisoners. in six cities and villages since june. it says eight of the victims were under the age of 18. the group says government fighters are said to have carried out the executions and retaliation for the killing of captured shia soldiers and local residents by sunni islamist insurgents. human rights watch says atrocities committed by the government should receive the same condemnation as those carried out by insurgents. the iraqi government denied the killings saying the report is inaccurate and unfair. >>> world health organization officials say the outbreak of the ebola virus has been linked to more than 500 deaths in west africa. >> concerns are rising that the epidemic may spread farther. a w.h.o. spokesperson said there have been 888 confirmed or suspected cases and 39 deaths. 539 deaths. the outbreak began in march. the number of new cases have been declining but it's growing rapidly in neighboring liberia. and

from the wars in iraq and afghanistan. it took someone from every family in the country. if you were here at home, you had a brother, a boyfriend, a husband, a son, a grandson, many friends who were overseas. in the european theater or the pacific theater. and you were worried about them, you were scared for them. and you were desperately interested in knowing, how are they? what is life like for them? is this terrible war changing them? being in touch with pyle's column was a way of being in touch with your own service members overseas. this is what a reviewer said about one of his books. his columns were quickly collected in compilations and became bestsellers. the reviewer said "ernie is a small-town guy in the tradition of will rogers. ernie looks on the best side of things" -- that was not so true as the war went on. "he writes the equivalent of letters home in a drowsy monotone, no more dramatic than a letter and just as irresistible. he writes what you would see yourself, provided you had ernie's keen imagination and his deep, sympathetic understanding." this continued all thr

in iraq and afghanistan. that was happening here. people are losing their homes. their farms were being burned. they were being murdered and tortured because they would not join the revolution. one of the families that happen to was the vanderlip family who had to escape into the swamp. one of the women in the family was given up for dead with her son, went on to canada. she survived long enough to get her baby son to safety. he was not reunited with the family for another 20 years. they lived in canada for a while. there is a place i found called vanderlip house in canada where they lived. they moved back into the illinois and ohio area in the 1800's. yes? >> i did not know about the secret meeting. i am sort of shocked. it is amazing. like you said, go on the internet and you will see they are the devil. one thing i do know is i read somewhere the words of woodrow wilson when he was dying. he said he regretted signing this bill because he had sold his country. that was the quote i came across. >> i don't know that quote, but i'm guessing the reason he would say that would because as p
to be about what's happening in texas. he talks about foreign policy. he talks about iraq. he talks about a lot of things. he takes on senator rand paul saying it's disheartening to hear fellow republicans such as rand paul suggest that our nation should ignore what's happening in iraq. so he's talking about everything, it seems, except in his op-ed, at least, except what's happening in texas. why? is he taking advantage of a spotlight he has right now? does he just have this stuff on his chest anyway the. >> i think it's pretty simple, t.j. he's running for president. when a governor spouts off about foreign policy and attacks one of the perceived frontrunners in his own party, he's just running for president. now, there are a lot of distortions or caricatures, including of rand paul's position and the comparison of today's world to the world of ronald reagan, and an attempt -- he actually took time to take a shot at the president. of course, rick perry is running for president. the only question is whether he decides ultimately to follow through on that or not to. but that's all that's
airstrikes continue to fly over gaza. and lost in iraq, the new political reality that is reflected in borders that keep shifting every single day. plus, engineers preparing to back to work on the costa concordia. you. >> it's day five of the air offensive in goose disa. nea gaza. several people died in that attack. >> you can see where the missile came through. it came through two stories of this house and landed right here in the ground floor. you can see the back end of that missile. i don't think you can see that, but we spoke to the director of this medical center, who said there is absolutely no one else here other than those who cared for the disabled. this is not a place where they would store rockets. the owner was very upset. you can see the scene of destruction here. there is a wheelchair here which has been left intact amazingly because the rest of this building has been turned to absolute republic. a lot of people actually suffered burns because you can see it's still dark when the missile hits it bursts into flames. israel does say it launches precision strikes. someti
125 people. and all this, as the terrorist group isis continues to attack iraq and syria. so, how does the crisis in gaza impact the crisis in iraq and syria as well? chuck nash joins us to discuss this. good to see you, as always. how do you see this all coming together? what are we seeing unfold in the middle east? >> i think what we're seeing is the further deterioration of the situation. the situations in iraq, the instability in the gulf, to afghanistan, and israel, and going through the northern coast of africa, and the dismemberment of a lot of those governments that were the fallout of the arab spring. and the focal point, israel, that's where they can coalesce around. when they're not fighting each other, that's what they look to. and hamas is around more than they' they've ever been. a lot of arms and capability have moved into gaza and thus into the hands of hamas from libya. >> and we've seen evidence of that. rocket fire from gaza has landed in bethlehem as well as hebron. what are your concerns about what unfolds in israel and gaza, and how that may bringmore anti more of
states, i think, is plainly false. ultimately, it is the people of iraq who will decide the future of iraq. >> he is a man known for his mediation skills. george mitchell helped broker peace in northern ireland. he also tried his hand in the middle east, serving as u.s. chief envoy to the israeli and palestinians under president barack obama. >> for both sides, the disadvantages of not getting an agreement are much greater than the difficulties that will come with getting an disagreement. >> he spent 15 years in the senate, first representing maine and as majority leader. but he says money and rigid ideology have changed the political landscape. >> it is dysfunctional. i hope very much that the american people will demand clearly and loudly change and we will have the necessary change. >> the man who has played mistaken roles talks as well about one of the people who most affected his life. >> i am certain that but for her, i would have led a very different and probably much less meaningful life. >> i caught up with the senator recently in new york. >> can we span the globe a bit?
with the united states, i think, is plainly false. ultimately, it is the people of iraq who will decide the future of iraq. >> he is a man known for his mediation skills. george mitchell helped broker peace in northern ireland. he also tried his hand in the middle east, serving as u.s. chief envoy to the israeli and palestinians under president barack obama. >> for both sides, the
-u.s. conflict, but that china is central. and i know that the iraq war is coming in the manuscript and i cannot wait to read that. but i wonder -- several times in the manuscript, you talked about the proxy wars happening elsewhere. some fellowship has argued that when we think about the wars that are happening elsewhere, we need to think of the cold war as a factor, but not as a puppet master for what else is going on in the world. bringing the cold war and -- cold war in or bringing other places into our thinking of the cold war seems to complicate the narrative of what else is going on in the world, the proxy wars, but also to think about -- but also to how we think about the cold war itself. i have been doing research on south africa and as we think about what is going on in the 1980's, we can think of south africa as something that was understood, the events in south africa and the slow end to apartheid was something that was understood by reagan and was also something else altogether. when you talk about the cold war and reagan's relationship to it, south africa is barely mentioned. of co
is the outcome of the conflict because people are watching. people in iraq, in iran, in syria are watching what israel is doing now in the time of conflict, and we have to make sure that the bottom line will be that you don't mess with us. we are peaceful nation, a democracy, but when you start sending missiles into our cities, we know how to hit back. >> the iron dome rocket has been able to interpret more than 130 incoming rockets, however, we understand those that hamas's five rockets that traveled deeper into israeli territory close to the bigger cities than ever before, what impact does this have on the military response so far on your side? >> the iron dome is a great example of the cooperation between israel and the u.s. there's a great innovation of technology, and we know that the hamas is frustrated because there's no people lining up in israel in terms of casualties, and happy about it, but still, telling civilians, it's good, but it's not perfect. you have to yield and do what we order the people to do in terms of rockets fired into our cities, but i think the hamas -- the people in
complicated, multilayered. this conflict. you have iraq under siege. you've got syria. lebanon. has its own infighting. egypt with terror attacks in the sinai. unrest throughout that country. now america's allies in some of those conflicts are its enemies in the rest. i mean, diplomacy is complicated. >> yeah, diplomacy's very complicated. one of the really interesting factor, right now is you've got essentially a shia sun/sunni ci war going on throughout the region in country after country after country. that is really taking most of the attention and consuming most of the attention in the region. that's a very different battle than one between arab muslims and israeli jews. i think when you look at that conflict which has been going on for a long time, it's a side show compared to what we've seen elsewhere. one of the missed opportunities, frankly, is when we invited iraq, took out hussein, many sunni states like the saudis, the united arab emirates and so on that were sunni nations were trying to feel out whether there was some form of soft deal. you know, the arab peace plan was based o
residents across iraq. the group says government forces have killed at least 255 sunni prisoners. in six cities and villages since june. it says eight of the victims were under the age of 18. the group says government fighters are said to have carried out the executions and retaliation for the killing of captured shia soldiers and local residents by sunni islamist insurgents. human rights watch says atrocities committed by the government should receive the same condemnation as those carried out by insurgents. the iraqi government denied the killings saying the report is inaccurate and unfair. >>> kurdish forces have seized two oil fields outside their autonomous region in northern iraq. this will further complicate the ongoing battles in iraq between shia-led government forces and sunni islamist insurgents. the iraqi oil ministry said the kurdish militiamen took control of the production facilities at the bai hassan and kirkuk oil fields near the city of kirkuk. it denounced the action and urged the kurds to immediately withdraw. kurdish forces took control of kirkuk last month. this was
the unemployment rate among military personnel coming back from iraq and in a stand and places like that. tremendous opportunity for people on the assignment. it is more than just the skills we have. secondly, people with disabilities. i know jack talked about this last year. we have a better bottom line in our state. there's a tremendous opportunity to take people who are currently at the sidelines. there is a disconnect between matching their unique abilities into the workplace. often, they are overlooked in terms of workplace opportunities. the third group -- , when the nga90's was involved with welfare reform, they granted a waiver for childless adults when it comes to things like food stamps. we just opted out of that waiver. this past year, it is costly. it cost us about $17 million. there are 46 states that still have a waiver that do not take that. that is because you have to pay. you have to pay for employability skills. groups like that -- people who are temporarily on government assistance, ways to transition into the workplace -- those are groups like and help to move your ch
brought to tears, you know? why should i feel like i should kill people in iraq and afghanistan because of something that happened here and not thinking about what we've been doing forever, you know, to iran, for instance, and to iraq and these other places. i want to say that they once asked me to read for salman rushdie, they said they wanted me to -- i like him, he's a nice guy, but they said we want you to read for him. i said, okay, but listen, first, i need to make a five minute statement apologizing to the country of iran for what we have done to them for so many years. [applause] and they said, you can't do that. and i said, why not? you know, because it's a white organization, they think they're not, but they are. even -- well, anyway. i said, i said why not? they said, because we're a writers' organization. we don't represent all those people who got tortured in those basements. we represent writers. and i said, okay, fuck you, i ain't gonna read. [laughter] but, you know, we have all these feelings, you know? andst the really -- and it's really important to question our love

, but they will not be wandering over to the united states to attack americans. these are places like afghanistan, pakistan iraq, some parts of western africa and a handful of other places where the bulk of the revolutionary islam thus using terrorist methods are located. turn to the united states, how many are there in the united states? well, after 9/11 the fbi director went to congress and said he suspected there were several hundred al qaeda related militants in the united states, and he was concerned that the fbi needed to find those people before they create havoc in the united states and do something on the order of an attack of the scale of 9/11. there has not been anything nearly like that. we have found a handful of al qaeda related terrorists in the united states. really about a dozen, and most of them were not very effective. the hang airs on who are really not ready for the big leagues. we know this because they opened up very easily in most cases to fbi informants. almost every case of a terrorist plot in the united states related to his like revolutionaries abroad, if there were two or more peopl
. they are the people who rejected calm. let's not forget we're talking about the ideological siblings of isis in iraq and syria, the spiritual brothers of the boko haram down in nigeria . they sometimes wear suits and look a little sophisticated, but if you look at what they say and look at what they do, this is one of the darkest regimes in modern political history. they have proven that they enjoy war crimes. they deliberately target our civilians and deliberately put their own civilians in the line of fire. i'm not sure that we're looking at a future of negotiation with this school of thought, and i think they're particularly dangerous to the palestinians, first and foremost, and we really need to get to a place where we can dismantle the terror machine, and then find a way back to negotiations with the palestinian authority. >> well, in that context, the u.n. high commissioner of human rights said on friday that it may violate international laws of targeting civilians. you bring up the position that it's hamas' fault that it's embed ding rocket launchers among the civilians? >> well, it's clear.
than 136 million this year adding to a total of more than one billion since 2010 in iraq. nearly one million internally displaced people join another million who remain displaced from the iraq war. those billions in humanitarian, all fueled by that fundamental belief that when displaced and endangered people need our support, we give it. when they arrive at the borders of neighboring nations, many under developed countries with few resources, we urge them not to turn them away. but those beneficiaries of our quickness to open our hearts and our wallets are not knocking at someone else's door. this week, it's clear that lately american policy and response to those seeking safety on our own front porch is not so fast. this week, president obama asked congress to approve $3.7 billion to respond to the summer of the 52,000 immigrant children crossing the southern border of the united states. the funds would go towards increasing border security, caring for the children while they're here, and efforts to repatriot and reintegrate for those sent home. part would be legal services and immig

east, especially some of what's going on in iraq? >> guest: people don't like that saying. religious people don't like it. religious people like to think that there is one version of christianity, one version of judaism, and it's their version, correct? but, of course, the problem is that when you are confronted with say sacred scriptures, what you have in front of you doesn't really exist in a vacuum. i mean, scripture without interpretation, it's just words on a page. that's all it is. it requires someone to encounter it and interpret it. and in doing so, one cannot help but bring one's own preconceived notions, one's political and economic and social views. why are there a thousand different versions of christianity, thousands of different versions of islam? precisely for that reason. and so as interpretation, it becomes very difficult to say this interpretation is wrong and this interpretation is right. be now, i do want to say one very important thing. you can say that one particular interpretation is more reasonable. you can say that it's more historically accurate. but there's
